Bank Rhode Island recently donated more than 33,000 pounds of food for local food pantries through its statewide food-drive initiative held in late August through September.

Throughout the drive, each of Bank Rhode Island’s 18 branches partnered with a food pantry in its community to ensure that all of the food collected will remain local to feed area residents. In addition to the food collected at the branches, Bank Rhode Island awarded each pantry a financial grant that will help them acquire additional food to stock their shelves. Each benefiting food pantry is a member of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank’s network of emergency food programs.

“The success of this year’s food drive is a direct result of the generosity of our customers and colleagues who recognize the importance of helping others,” said Mark J. Meiklejohn, president and CEO of Bank Rhode Island. “Being able to help local pantries during a time when the need further increases will have a tremendous impact on thousands of local families. Food is the most basic of all needs – there’s no reason for anyone in our community to go without a nutritious meal.” •
